Whyte ‘Ready For Violence’ Ahead Of High Risk Clash

This coming Saturday eyes around the boxing world will be firmly planted at London’s O2 Arena.

By Arron Cooper

This coming Saturday eyes around the boxing world will be firmly planted at London’s O2 Arena.

Whilst the ever-popular David Allen’s last-chance saloon encounter with Liverpool’s David Price may be the fan-favourite fight. It is ‘The Bodysnatcher’ Dillian Whyte’s high stakes clash with Oscar ‘Kaboom’ Rivas which has ramifications that ‘could’ shake up things at the heavyweight top table.

For Whyte, who has made the arena in North Greenwich his home turf, and his traveling Columbian counterpart. The WBC ‘interim’ world championship, and a shot at the full title, currently held by America’s brash Deontay Wilder is the ultimate prize.

Brixton based Whyte has been very vocal in criticising the governing body to which he has sat atop their rankings for over 600 days. Remarks, which if the governing body are to be believed nearly cost him his lofty position. 

Whyte will be all too wary about overlooking a relative unknown quantity in the heavyweight division. For many the shock of Whyte’s arch-rival, Anthony Joshua losing his place at the top of boxing’s premier division is still raw. This seems to have galvanised Whyte’s focus more than ever. And, in typical Dillian Whyte fashion, has promised one thing .... Violence.

Whyte had a breakout 2018. Knockout wins over Lucas Browne and a points victory over former World Champion, Joseph Parker has seen ‘The Bodysnatcher’ linked to big-fights world wide, though none ever materialised. Having lost his WBO mandatory spot to Oleksandr Usyk, as per the governing bodies rules. Whyte also turned down a fight with Kubrat Pulev for chance at being the IBF mandatory challenger. A fight with both Luis Ortiz and Tyson Fury were mooted but never happened. He even turned down a chance at a rematch with Anthony Joshua in April!

As it stands, should he be victorious, he will have to wait until at least May 2020 until he finally receives his coveted world title shot. With current champion, Deontay Wilder slated to challenge Luis Ortiz and Tyson Fury for his next two fights. Heck, we may end up seeing Fury vs Whyte after all!

The bookmakers have installed Whyte as a heavy favourite over Oscar Rivas, whose breakout win happened in January of this year over Joe Joyce’s most recent foe, Bryant Jennings.

Will Rivas rock the apple cart? Or will the columbian fall to the best counter left hook in the game? Only time will tell...
